Hilarious: Duhon an Option for Chicago

The Bulls selected Chris Duhon with the No. 38 pick in the second round of the 2004 NBA Draft. He played with the team until 2008. Duhon signed a two-year contract to play with the Knicks after his tenure with the Bulls, one which expires on June 30. And according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, "a league source said the Bulls have held internal discussions about bringing back free agent Chris Duhon as a third guard." Duhon fell out of favor in the Knicks' lineup this season, and shot the lowest percentage of his career (37.3 percent) other than his rookie season (35.3 percent). However, he is a decent three-point shooter, having hit 39.1 percent in 2008-2009 for the Knicks and 36.2 percent for his career. That could be of worth to the Bulls next season, a team that struggled with shooting from beyond the arc this past season.

Hollinger Praises Pargo Signing

"Signing Jannero Pargo to a one-year deal was a great coup for the Bulls for a few reasons. First of all, they needed a fourth guard now that Ben Gordon left for Detroit. And since Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich are both big point guards, he can play off the ball with either and switch assignments on defense. Second, the one-year part is crucial. Chicago needs to preserve as much cap space as possible for a year from now, when they could potentially make a run at Chicago native Dwyane Wade or some of the other juicy free agents. That's also why you're hearing Tyrus Thomas' name so much; Chicago can only get big cap room if it doesn't make him a qualifying offer, so better to trade him now and get something in return than be left high and dry a year from now."

Lindsay Hunter Picks Blair and Ellington in Player Mock Draft

Pretty interesting article, getting the player's take on who their team should draft and then occasionally responses from the draft pick, which leads to some funny quotes from those who think they dropped too far. Here's the picks from Lindsay Hunter for us: 16. Bulls/Lindsey Hunter select ... DeJuan Blair, C/PF, Pittsburgh "He's just a flat-out beast inside," says guard Lindsey Hunter. "He brings that brute force that could help us down low right now, on offense and defense. I saw him play UConn, and he owned Hasheem Thabeet. But I like his soft touch around the basket. He's got the potential to score, too." Doug Says: "His knees are definitely a question, but Blair is a beast." 26. Bulls/Lindsey Hunter select ... Wayne Ellington, SG, North Carolina "He's by far one of the best shooters in the draft," says reserve sniper Lindsey Hunter. "Coming off a pick, stop and pop, or catch and shoot, he's going to knock it down. He was great at Carolina, but now he'll have to create off the dribble. If he can do that, he'll be a force."

The Bulls seem to be the latest team trying to move up in the draft. They've talked to several teams in front of them in the draft with an offer of the No. 16 and No. 26 picks in the draft. It sounds as if the Nets have been their target and it might make sense for the Nets to jump on the deal. They could still get a player like Tyler Hansbrough at 16 and pick up another player late in the first.

Q: I'm watching the Bulls-Celts game -- can I nominate Vinny Del Negro for a new Pantheon Face? It's the Shooter from "Hoosiers," "I can't believe I haven't had a drink for 12 hours, and I'm a head coach" face. -- Ryan, Weymouth, Mass. SG: Done and done! I had been watching Vinny for two weeks, trying to figure out where I'd seen that glazed, slightly terrified, I-might-pee-my-pants look on the sidelines, and you're right -- it's Shooter in "Hoosiers" right after Gene Hackman gets ejected and hands him the clipboard for the first time. Bingo. I demand we call him Vinny "Shooter" Del Negro from now on. The real shame is Derrick Rose has exceeded all expectations and looks like a potential franchise guy ... and he's being coached by "Shooter" instead of Mike D'Antoni. I can't get over that.

ESPN Eastern Conference predictions

Bulls in at #9... Better that I'd expect them to predict but hopefully worse than how things really turn out

Speculation: Gordon Sign and Trade to the Jazz

Just a Utah beat writer pulling a Sam Smith here, but nonetheless some interesting ideas. I personally would be pretty happy with a Gordon for Kirilenko swap without anything else added in because he's versatile enough to play with any of our front court guys and can do so many good things on defense. The idea he proposes of Gordon/Nocioni for Kirilenko/ Ronnie Brewer would really be a dream deal.
